Here are ten Disney tips to help you make the most out of your visit to Disney World.
My Top 10 Disney World Tips
1. Stay on Property
By staying at one of the Disney World properties, you receive many benefits. One of the main benefits of staying at a WDW hotel is that you can get Extra Magic Hours. This means that you can get into certain parks one hour before other people or one hour later. There is a schedule that lets you know which park has the early or late Magic Hour. Your hotel will have that information. Take advantage of this great opportunity by going to the park with the Early Magic Hour, so that you can ride more with less wait.
2. Arrive to the Park Early
Whichever park you decide to visit, make sure your group arrives 15-20 minutes before it opens. That means scheduling breakfast and transportation times ahead of schedule to ensure you make it to the park before the 9 AM rope drop. Once you arrive, head straight to one of the popular rides so that you will get it out of the way with
3. Schedule Your Disney Fast pass
Once you buy your tickets to the parks and book your hotel room, you have done the two most important steps. The next one is to schedule your Disney Fast
4. Bring Water and Snacks
Disney allows you to bring in food to the parks (except for giant coolers). I highly advise that you bring hydroflask water bottles and refill them around the park to save money. You could also bring a small backpack cooler with water bottles and some snacks, as they can get pricey.
5. Eat Meals Early or Late
This is one of the Disney World Tips I share that most people have a hard time with. Try to eat your lunch and dinner a little earlier or later than the usual times to avoid massive crowds. By eating lunch before noon or dinner before 6, you will save a great deal of time.View Orlando Deals!
6. Make Dinner Reservations
You can schedule dinner reservations on the My Disney Experience App. As soon as you have your hotel, tickets, and Fastpass scheduled, you can check dining menus and make a reservation at many hotel and park restaurants. They do require a credit card to book, but will not charge you unless you are a no show. If you do not see the reservation time you’d like, try checking back later as people often cancel and your time slot “magically” opens up. 6.
7. Don’t Ignore Your Feet
One of the best Disney tips I can share is to WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES! Chances are you will be walking a lot when you are at Disney World, so be sure to bring the right sneakers.
8. Schedule a Rest Day

10. Go to Disney Springs
Disney Springs, formerly Downtown Disney, is a fantastic destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. Here you can find the world’s biggest Disney store, play with Legos, drink and shop at Coca-Cola, watch a movie, listen to live bands, take a boat ride, and so much more. Our family always makes it a point to stop here one of the days we are on vacation.
